Episode 47: Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore on Gay Shame and Why Are Faggots So Afraid of Faggots?




This latest episode of Horizontal Power Hour features an interview with Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, radical queer activist extraordinaire and editor of the new anthology WHY ARE FAGGOTS SO AFRAID OF FAGGOTS? FLAMING CHALLENGES TO MASCULINITY, OBJECTIFICATION, AND THE DESIRE TO CONFORM! Mattilda will discuss the new book as well as her work with the radical queer direct action group Gay Shame. âGAY SHAME is a Virus in the System. We are committed to a queer extravaganza that brings direct action to astounding levels of theatricality. We will not be satisfied with a commercialized gay identity that denies the intrinsic links between queer struggle and challenging power. We seek nothing less than a new queer activism that foregrounds race, class, gender and sexuality, to counter the self-serving âvaluesâ of gay consumerism and the increasingly hypocritical left. We are dedicated to fighting the rabid assimilationist monster with a devastating mobilization of queer brilliance.â As always, we give a round-up of action news from around the world, with music from Blackfire, Flogging Molly and Son of Nun ft. DJ Mentos. Original air date: 10-9-12.
